NEW YORK — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo called for state police and the National Guard to look over soft targets like airports, train stations, bridges, and tunnels following Monday’s explosion in an underground walkway near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, CBS New York reported.
Additional personnel were being deployed to “high-density areas and large public gatherings,” Gov. Cuomo said.
Police said the “terror-related” incident happened around 7:20 a.m. Monday when 27-year-old Akayed Ullah set off a pipe bomb in the underground passageway on West 42nd Street between 7th and 8th avenues, according to CBS New York. For the full story, click here.
